Why is private sector engagement important?

 

Migration is in the news everywhere. Governments recognize that we need a multi-stakeholder solution to the governance of migration. The private sector is the main jobs and services provider for migrants.
Join us to strengthen our role in advocating for a regulatory environment in which labour migration policies support business and development to create jobs and economic growth.
